During Term 2, NCNS Youth Team ran a Let’s Build program developed due to young people displaying an interest in wanting to build thing, so we channelled that energy into designing and creating catapults and shields. It was a great space to get creative, hang out and make friends.
The young people loved using the coloured spray cans to create the finished product.
It was great to see the young people show off their finished shields with such a sense of pride and achievement.
We also had some hilarious games of hide and seek, with the youth finding some interesting places to hide resulting in much laughter and enjoyment for all.
The program was popular, averaging six young people attending each week, leading us to continue the program in term 3 and amping it up by building buddy benches from up-cycled materials and the introduction of power tools. The benches made will be donated to local schools and community services.
